Abstract

Life on Earth is adapted to a cycling environment. Most obviously it is adapted to the daily rotation of earth around its axis. Studies have shown that the synchronization of the circadian clock with the day-night cycle is necessary to ensure optimal performance of humans. In this presentation the special conditions for the circadian system and for the regulation of sleep during a space mission are discussed.Models and concepts for circadian regulation and sleep are presented. Differences emerging from leaving the regularly cycling environment are discussed. Simulations will illustrate the consequences of space travel for the circadian system.Provisions are discussed as to how the circadian system can be manipulated to improve performance and well-being of astronauts.
